the brown decision was made and early on, the 101st airborne division sent into little rock in 1957 was trained in riot control. this was not for riots in europe. they anticipated this, hoped not. one reason that brownell could persuade eisenhower to propose legislation was he convinced eisenhower it might be an alternative to using the one legal out that he had which was to use the troops, hoping not to do it. but he did. but little rock is the tip of the defense of brown ice berks and i would point out to you that eisenhower could have chosen not to send troops. people assume he was forced to. >> yes. >> he was chose to, and he chose to very quickly, and he didn't craven around about it as much as some of the half informed commentaries say. the timeline was very shortstop as you mentioned, ernie, the faubus announced the national guard to -- to patrol the school on the night of september 2nd. they were there in the morning of september 3rd. on september 4th herbert brownell held a news conference and indicated specifically with the president's approval that one of the option ofs t

's take that full and look at the brown that you see here. you can barely even see any snow in many of these areas. and we have got a couple of statistics that we want to share with you. there you can see what the snow pack looks like so far this year, not a lot on the map. let's advance that, and show you what the snow pack looked like last year. wow. what an incredible difference. so as a whole, colorado, the may snow pack was 135% of average last season. this season, only 20% of average, one week off from the all time record earliest closing for a basin. this really is very significant. another statistic for you, that maybe you're not a skier but you care and interested in what is going on in denver. the average snowfall for the month of march and april is usually 20 inches. this year, only an inch. so that's a huge difference here. the problem is there is just basically no snow. that's the bottom line, fredricka. we had a latina type pattern and that kept the snow away. >> oh, gosh, all right. maybe next year. for those that like to ski until july. all right, thanks a lot, appre
generation is more black and brown than the older generation. so you just add all these things together, and particularly from an older conservative perspective, it's easy to be distrustful of people who appear to be doing things the wrong way, demanding benefits and money and opportunities they have not yet earned, and just in general they're just not the america we built. and so you do that from tea partiers but we built this country. we worked hard. it's been taken away from us. spink i think with three minutes left, so one quick question. >> i work here at the institute. so the tea party members, they remember the cuyahoga river burning. they remember smoggy days, so why opposition to environmental protection? >> i think that's a great question. and i think it does get to the real core question, when people are conservatives and this idea of conservation, maybe they are related terms answer of not using more than you need are all ideas that people practice in their private lives in something, you become tea party members talked about clipping coupons which is him like a related sort

with the historic 1954 supreme court decision in brown versus the topeka board of education. these struggles for civil rights has not been easy. when they occur, they often revolve around the constitution with the rights that define us, as a nation have always been secured. first ten amendments to the constitution are known as the bill of rights. spell out personal rights and freedoms that are guaranteed to every american, including freedom of speech, religion and the press. right to petition the government, right to bear arms and the right to due process of law. most of the later amendments sought to explicitly extend rights, granted in the constitution itself to individual who's had been excluded from full participation in our democracy when the constitution was adopted in 1787. three post civil war amendments abolished slavery, made former slaves u.s. citizens and granted them the right to vote. the 19th amendment grant women the right to vote and another grant access to the ballot by 18-year-olds. we may view founding documents as timeless, but the government they envisioned and that we
is kicking off his reelection campaign >> let's not forget jerry brown, the governor's tax plan. first we start with developing news in oakland. in exchange of gunfire between police and a suspect. >> it happened around midnight on burr oak street. police say the suspect fired first and hit the suspect who fired back. the officer is in stable condition right now but there is no official word on the status of the suspect. there were only a few arrests in san jose last night during the cinco de mayo celebrations. two of them happen near city hall. police have one person down on the street and another against the wall. this was all part of a very heavy police presence all weekend long to prevent a repeat of last year's vandalism. many cars were bearing the mexican flag. just after 8:00 p.m. police moved into the street and shot down lanes and set up a traffic diversion. they also urged bystanders not to gather on street corners. overall police took a proactive posture at any sign of trouble >> we feel comfortable with the number of officers working tonight that if we do have any crimes or an
